Aditi Rao Hydari, who played the lead role in Kaatru Veliyidai, has been signed to play an important role in Mani Ratnam’s next untitled multi-starrer project, which features an all-star cast. Sources close to the team also indicate that Fahadh Faasil has opted out of the film.
Produced by Madras Talkies and Lyca Productions, the yet-untitled film now features Vijay Sethupathi, Simbu, Jyotika and Aishwarya Rajesh as leads. Simbu is working out rigorously to shed some weight for his role. AR Rahman has been signed to compose music for the film.
